Performing arts

PUTNEY "Love in Space-Time" - A Staged Reading of a Work-in-Progress by Gia Forakis: This is an experimental, non-linear performance project that aims to create an experience of space-time (also known as the 4th dimension or the time continuum). The narrative traces a woman's passage through the love and loss of two men - her father and her lover - suggesting that it's during experiences of love and grief that a doorway into the 4th dimension opens up for us if we care to walk through it. Scenes overlap, repeat, layer upon one another, and time and space are fluid. This is a journey of hope, humor, catharsis, and transcendence. It is a story about what lies on the other side of grief. Cast: Liza Cassidy, Jose Febus, Jeffrey Parry, Randolph Curtis Rand, Bronwyn Sims. 7 p.m.-8:30 p.m. reading, 8:30 p.m.-9 p.m. talk back. By donation. Next Stage Arts Project, 15 Kimball Hill.
